Oeno Gallery proudly presents ‘Go Your Own Way,’ an exhibition that celebrates ‘the journey’ as reflected in the lyrical minimalist paintings of Canadian artist Pat Service.
This series of paintings was created following several road trips the artist made driving through the Canadian landscape. They are her recollections of that joyful experience—the allure and freedom of the open road, getting lost and finding the way. As an artist, Pat Service continues to grow and evolve in exciting new directions.
Joining her is Sandra Meigs, another artist whose colourful, evocative abstract paintings have delighted viewers for more than thirty-five years. A visual feast—Meig’s playful and complex paintings often include keywords such as ‘LOVE’—that help direct her upbeat narrative.
Also, on display—the elegant intricately detailed ceramics of Loren Kaplan, the gorgeous light-filled glass works by Julia Reimer, and John Paul Robinson and the distinctive environmentally conscious designs of STACKLAB.
